Lining mittens
To follow up on a previous thread where I asked about lining mittens, I just wanted to give a quick update. My attempt was a complete disaster!

Since the mittens were a bit loose on my boyfriend anyway, I figured I could just trace a pattern around them, and after sewing with a 1/4" seam allowance, they would fit him just right. Well, they barely fit ME! And this was after having to cut off the wrist portion completely because silly me didn't remember that the wrist part is supposed to STRETCH!

It's embarrassing, really, seeing as I majored in fashion design in college and did nothing but sew for 4 years!
